Hello, Anton!

Thank you for your update.
I think it makes sense to include your 10 notes with the pkgutils source
README file for further reference.

I currently moved one of my machines to your
pkgutils-c, the others might follow. Good work!

I'm using vim with tab inserting tabs which are 8 spaces wide.
In the case of pkgadd.conf I just felt too lazy to align the
rows manually, whenever I insert characters somewhere in the regexps.

Thank you! 8-)

Oh, and I have one more wish:
Is it possible to extend the db and pkgutils with a time tag containing
the time when a package has been installed?
I guess we would need to break the db or add a second log file?!

I often want to re-install an already installed package without
any version change after I upgraded i.e. gcc.
Okay, maybe prt-get.conf's {add,remove}command can help me here...
